Let Go Your Attachments

Student: How to reach enlightenment? Master:  Enlightenment is a status of your mind.  When your mind has tranquility, purity and awareness, we call this status of the mind enlightenment.  How to achieve enlightenment? By letting go of your attachments and by letting go of dust which covers on the mirror, you will be able to manifest a shining mirror.  This is the true idea of achieving enlightenment. Achieving enlightenment is nothing to do with approaching to the goal.  It is different.  One way or the other, to let go of your attachments is a really meaning of approaching.  It is not that you carry your ego and self-attachments to achieve enlightenment or to approach to the goal. If you still have the concept "I", it means that you never achieve enlightenment.   Thoughts come and go. The physical body is changing all the time.  Which thought and physical body can you use to achieve enlightenment?  No.  By letting go of your attachments and when your mind manifests its own intrinsic purity, we call that achieving enlightenment.
